‘Supernatural’ resumes production on final episodes

(Supernatural resumed production on 8/18)

The boys are back in action. After spending what probably seemed like an eternity in isolation due to new COVID-19 production rules, Supernatural stars Jensen Ackles (Dean Winchester) and Jared Padalecki (Sam Winchester) have shaved off their quarantine beards and have resumed production on the final episodes of the long-running CW series.

Production on the final two episodes actually began in Vancouver on August 18, and the two shared an Instagram photo of “SPN Tape Ball.” Ackles, who was recently cast in Season 3 of Eric Kripke’s (Supernatural’s creator) The Boys and Padalecki, who will lead the reboot of Walker, Texas Ranger, are shown sitting in the Men of Letters bunker set, with the masked tap ball at the other end of the table.

The caption reads, “When their Covid test results come in before yours.” 

Like other series in production, filming of Supernatural was stopped in March by the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. There were only two episodes left to film. Unfortunately, technical departments also had to be shuttered, so there are still seven episodes left to air. 

As reported here, Supernatural returns to The CW beginning Thursday, October 8 at 8/7c. The final ever episode airs Thursday, November 19 as part of a two-hour even which will include Supernatural: The Long Road Home.
